Then treats were handed out to Aly and Lindsay for their movie trailers on their banned books. Once we were all settled into our new seats, we discussed the agenda for today.this is what the powerpoint said: scribe treats for Aly and Lindsay new seating chart Begin 1984 author information Background information, what was going on at the time in the world Introduce Loggel-play with loggel Homework: Loggel We all need to have a copy of the book “1984” for class. Next, we began discussing our next major project. This project is on loggel about the author of “1984” George Orwell. This project will be done by the class as a whole.
